How is your community dealing with COVID-19 now?
(click to expand)

  • Most of my friends are getting flu and booster shots. Some have colds and the small children are getting RSV. Great news story about the Mayor of Richmond and VDH Health director getting double shots.

  • “Either pretending like it's all over with, or being vigilant to keep up with education and vaccination

  • “More actual facts, more myth busting

  • “Unfortunate fewer people are masking up indoors, and not a surge of purple getting the bivalent booster…

  • “The public is fed up with COVID 19 precautions and too much coverage from the media. The public has been inundated by over ambitious yet conflicting coverage and is now a combination of highly skeptical and tone deaf.

  • “Levels seem ( in my circles) to be lowering of infections.

  • I myself did endure Covid 19 I believe the omnicron variant even after the original 2 shots and the following 2 boosters. I felt rotten but nothing life threatening. I was discouraged in taking the anti viral( not studied enough and hard on the kidneys) that was the reasoning. I was however offered the infusion which I declined. Best advice was to continue taking the severe cold formula which I did; finally negative after 10 days.

  • I have since gotten the bivalant booster and the flu shot about 2 weeks apart.

  • As a retired RN I understand just how important these injections and boosters are and I'm thankful for medical sciences advances.

  • Thank You!!

  • “COVID is not a topic in any conversation anymore. When talking to church groups most elderly have received the additional booster. So many people are sick with flu like symptoms. There has to be a bigger push to get the flu vaccine.

Our community ambassadors are willing to participate in missions beyond COVID-19 + help their communities ho they can.
